Bumble and Bee Studio – Playful Apparel for your Busy Bee
Bumble and Bee Studio was founded by Melissa Richt after the birth of her daughter. At the time, she found it difficult to find a range of minimally designed basics that were durable and could withstand their quality throughout many washing cycles. Drawing upon her own experience in retail and business she sought to create her own capsule collection of interchangeable baby and toddler unisex clothing.
Our Clothing – Playful, Sustainable, and Made to Last
Our first collection, launched in Autumn 2017, consists of 12 year-round playful essentials that are minimally designed in a soft pastel color palette. Hand illustrated tees, cozy cotton tunics, and casual rompers – all designed with sustainability and durability in mind. We use only the softest organic jersey and cotton, to ensure everyday comfort and function.
Our Company Mission
To offer the best quality organic unisex apparel for babies and toddlers that is made within the EEA.
To create comfortable, functional and practical clothing that parents feel good about buying and that keeps its quality over time.
To continue to make a difference in our world by creating clothing that lessens the impact on our environment and builds awareness of how buying ethically has a positive impact on our communities and our children’s future.
Better for Our Environment and our Children
All of our clothing is made according to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) using only GOTS certified materials. GOTS is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. This certification ensures that from when the cotton is picked and throughout the entire production process - only the best choices are made for the environment and our children.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) requirement is more than just using ecological grown cotton. It's partnering with socially responsible manufacturers, using only organic certified dyes, and using only recycled packaging materials such as decomposable poly bags for shipping and FSC recycled paper for our marketing materials and hang tags. In addition, to lessen our carbon footprint, we use no air transportation for our production deliveries, only ground level shipping that stays within the European Economic Community (EEC). For more information about GOTS and our promise to you please refer to our GOTS page.
